Use of the threat of violence or actual violence in taking property from someone else's possession. This peril is covered on a personal basis through the purchase of a homeowners insurance policy or renters insurance or on a business basis through a special multiperil insurance (SMP) policy. Specialty items such as coin and stamp collections must be specifically scheduled on a property policy in order for the insured to receive full value for a loss.
